Go West Young Man, Go West! Judge Walker Did Years Ago By MRS. IDA L. CRICHTOT Srt Jourpal Correspondent) LANCASTER Up in South Dakota, in Sawyer and Haakon counties, they still speak of Ray Walker as one of the be.i auctioneers who ever cried a sale. And Auctioneer Walker, now Judge Walker of the probate and juvenile courts of Grant county, beams with pleasure when the subject is brought up by any one acquainted with his old stomping ground. He likes nothing better unless it's fishing to hark back :o those 20 years spent in the northwest. . It was around the turn of the rentury, shortly after his graduation from the Unive'rsity of Wisconsin law school, that he headed west. It took him almost a quarter of a century to get back to his native Grant county. In the interim he had not only tried his hand at auctioneering but had done a lot -of other interesting things which all added materially to his knowledge of the subject he is most interested in human nature. He Did Everything He started a bank, which wonder be, is still running. He was a. sheep rancher, store keeper, state and county official and a band leader. Bands became his hobby. Whenever he went into a new place he asked first thing if it had a band. If it didn't and most of them did not- ie immediately set about organizing one. He could play any instrument in a pinch and often did at a moment's notice in addition to directing. If all the bands, rube or regular, which he has organized or led in his time were placed end to end. he says the result would be a parade of formidable proportions. His store was primarily an Indian trading place, 45 miles from the nearest railroad. Just across the river was the Cheyenne Indian reservation and the Cheyennes were among his most valued friends as well as his best customers. The Sioux were plentiful too, and showed their good will by adopting him into their tribe. They cave him the name "Walking Hunter." after a respected old brave who had been a mighty stalker of big game. Remembers Indians "Titles of that kind are a dime a dozen now out in that country," j TiiWcrt. WalVaf remarkc "Kilt i,wni in ruiiage, lie wauicu teose days there weren't so many j presidents and movie actors' around to be honored at tribal j ceremonials." ! In addition to the Indians, the, store drew the trade of cowboys j and the few ranch families in the area. He carried everything from tooth 1 picks to threshing machines.

Prairie Hunters Get Bucks Upstate PRAIRIE DU CHIEN Albert Check of near Prairie du Chien reported Saturday shooting a 145-pound buck with eight points within an hour after going deer hunting last week at Iron River. His two companions, Ralph No-vacek and Raymond Slama, also were successful in bagging an eight-point and a seven-point buck apiece weighing 159 and 137 pounds respectively. Novacek's was only five rods from the road. Green Sportsmen Return With Deer NEW GLARUS Among Green county's oldest deer hunters was Jacob Krieg. Sr 79, who usually is successful.

George Asks Housing Survey for Portage Powder Plant May Bring 600 Families to City By TOLMAN HOLLEN (State Journal Correspondent) PORTAGE Stressing that it may be necessary for Portage to house 600 additional families once construction of the $65,000,000 smokeless powder plant Merri-mac is be?un, Herbo-' St. George, of the All Interested committee, urged Saturday that Portage speed a city housing survey. The survey, which "will have to be made for the city's own good," is necessary to insure a high priorities rating in the new defense area, he said. Without a rating, critical building materials, such as metal products or products with a base, will be difficult to ob- Service Clubs Can Aid the chamber of commerce, might i conduct the survey at little cost, St. ' George suggested. "All that is needed is a true sampling of housing conditions ! here," he said. "Just enough to j show the government you are interested in the defense program." "A lot of peo.'? p've a mis- taken notion about the powder j Plan he said. "It will not be an eye-sore. Most of the buildings j will be partly underground. Gases I will be purified before escaping! into the open air. The power plant : will be the only thing projecting , up into the air.

"At Manitowoc (where a shipbuilding project is underway) the government built 400 houses of low-cost, prefabricated panels. Ten per cent of the houses are occupied.

McQUUcatd Stat 8dUo 8 State Farm Prices Soar 44 Per Cent Badger Rise Sf ill Paces U. S. Milk Leads Way, Livestock Next Wisconsin farm prices were 44 per cent above October of last year, and rose 1 per cent above the September index xf prices, according to the October report of federal-state crop reporting service. Milk prices increased 52 per cent from October last year, livestock prices rose 46 per cent, grain prices were up 41 per cent, poultry products increased 34 per cent in price, while cash crops were 7 per cent higher, the crop and livestock reporter reveals. The .rise in Wisconsin farm prices continues to exceed that of the nation as a whole, with a 44 per cent rise in the state and a national increase of 40 per cent. Milk Prices Up Prices received for milk in Oc- j tober averaged $2.22 per hundred weight compared witn a month earlier and only $1.45 in October a year ago. In the year, milk prices climbed 53 per cent in the state. Market milk establishments paid farmers 11 cents per hundred more for milk in October than in September, while milk prices at cheese factories were up 9 cents, at con-denseries 7 cents, and at creameries 1 cent. Compared with a year ago, milk prices advanced 86 cents at cheese factories, 82 cents at con- denseries, 67 cents at creameries, ; and 62 cents at market milk estab-with lishments. With favorable fall pastures, good prices, and the aim of all-out production, Wisconsin farmers pushed total milk production 9 per cent above a year earlier, and it is now 23 per cent greater than the 10-year average production for November 1930-39. It is the twelfth consecutive month that milk pro duction in the state has exceeded the previous record production for the respective month, Pastures Excellent Wisconsin farmers continue to! outdo dairymen in other states in j production, too. While Wisconsin production is up 9 per cent, the j national gain is 4 per cent. The record milk flow for this season of the year has been made j possible by excellent pastures, due no tne late rains, and unusually heavy reeding oi grain and concen- t. ... trates. lhe reeding or grains and concentrates is at an all-time high. being 38 per cent greater than last year, but high prices being paid for dairy products still makes "pressure" production profitable. The average of prices paid by farmers for commodities bought rose over 2 per cent tin past month. Compared with a year ago, October farm product prices were up 44 per cent and prices paid by farmers were only 11.5 per cent higher, resulting in a rise in farmers' purchasing power of about 32 per cent. The demand for milk cows reflects the state-wide effort to increase dairy production. Milk cow prices in Wisconsin advanced $3 per head from September to October. At $95 per head, October prices averaged $21 higher than a year ago and mgher than any month since February 1930. Wisconsin farmers aren't "cash ing m at the dairy plants alone. Egg production is the highest ever recorded for this time of year, and flocks are at record size. Egg prices in mid-October av erage 30.6 cents per dozen for the state, compared with 21.7 cents a year ago. This is the highest October average since 192. Corn Improves Laying flocks, the rate of laying, and total egg production were at record levels Nov. 1. Farm flocks averaged 105 compared with 97 a year ago, and the average per hundred layers climbed from 24.1 to zo.i. tLgg production per tarm is nearly 13 per cent above a year ago, and 34 per cent above the 10-year average for the month. Wisconsin's corn crop improved considerably late in the season and the yield is estimated at 40 bushels per acre. While this is nearly 5 per cent below the big crop harvested last year, it is nearly 20 per cent above the 10-year average. Washington appeals for decreased cheese consumption apparently aren't based on current cold storage reports. There were nearly 189 million pounds of cheese in cold storage on November 1 the largest amount ever reported on any date. About 159 million pounds of American cheese was held, a new all-time high also. Swiss cheese stocks are down slightly from a month ago, but are the largest November holding since 1934. Slightly more than 186 million pounds of creamery butter were held in cold storage on Nov. 1, compared with 105 million a year ago and the record for the month of 195 million in 1938. Included in the crop and livestock reporter is a summary . of 1940 dairy manufacturing in Wisconsin. New records were established in 1940 for both Wisconsin and the country. as a whole. Wisconsin produced 407 million pounds of cheese, or 52 per cent of the 784 million pounds that was an all-time high in cheese production for the nation. There were 601 million pounds of cheddar cheese TKe Wisconsi A. J. Jamiesons, of Poynette, Observe 55th Anniversary fttWWJi"'-! ' !.!!!! !!:!!.!..;:; , . I Mr. and Mrs. A, when they were years ago.

S. last year, compared to 379 million pounds in 1930. Wisconsin produced slightly more than 52 per cent of the Cheddar cheese. Swiss cheese plants in the state reported manufacturing more than 32 million pounds of Swiss cheese in 1940, or two-thirds of the nation's production. The state also made more than 12 million pounds of Italian cheese, about 50 per cent of the U. S. total. Wisconsin is also reported to have produced 27 per cent of the condensed and powdered milk products, 26 per cent of the powdered skim milk, and 25 per cent of the nation's dried casein. max m&i&d N wspaper State V&tye MADISON, SUNDAY, NOV.

China Has Hope, Kivanis Told Lee Tells Monroe Club of Struggle By DAVE VEL1E (st,-t" '"urnal Correspondent) MONROE China is by no means beaten in her current war with Japan; her armies are continuing to fight, her industries have been decentralized, and she has plenty of potential manpower, to draw on for fighting the Nipponese. Philip Yung Lee, Chinese lecturer, so declared here Thursday in a talk before the Monroe Ki-wanis club. With his wif, who vas a nurse for Fred Snite, Jr., vealthy young American who w. - stricken with infantile paralysis several years ago, Lee has been lecturing in the United States for the past year. "The Chinese have been fighting for their life," said Lee, "and in four years have become a united people in their struggle with Japan. The Japanese have an army of 2,000,000 men in China, and have lost 1,000,000 men in the four years of fighting. "The drain on Japanese manpower is really a slow suicide, because Japan is a highly industrialized nation." i , ... . . J iHT makes up for these weaknesses by her determination to carry the fight on to victory." Arrival of American airplanes in a steady stream, together with a steady shipment of supplies on the famous Burma road into China is helping in the China fight against the Jap invaders, he declared.
